You forget who the second bottom club is. In the great farce that is the MFC opus, GC will get a minimum of one priority pick, at the start of the draft. We will then proceed to draft the 2019 version of Jimmy Toumpas/Cale Morton/Jack Watts/Tom Scully/Jack Trengove at 3, while the rest of the top 5 of this years draft go on to become hall of gamers.
Oh yeah!! Go Dees!
Except the fact that in more recent times we actually know how to draft with early picks eg Oliver, Brayshaw and Petracca...

Wouldn't exactly be calling them raging successes yet and besides Trac an Brayshaw were 2 and 3 .. hardly takes a great recruiter

Solid reasoning, but on the other hand Sam Frost sounds like a deep-freezer and he goes alright.
Dunno about that.

I think if I was in the market for a decent deep-freezer then “Sam Frost” wouldn’t inspire me as a trustworthy brand name. In the same way if I was looking for a sound system I would look at amps called Bose, but might steer away from anything called Greg Loud-Noise. And I can see myself buying a Honda, but not so much a Craig Speed.

A Sam Frost freezer would be the sort you find in the Aldi mystery aisle.

That's a bit unfair: with the savings you make from buying a Sam Frost freezer, you can easily afford the roughly 12 rolls of duct tape that you will need to hold it together over the years, and have change left over for a coffee, a danish, and some ham and cheese on that danish.

Well huzzah. A top 3 pick to take to the draft or a nugget to trade with just one year after making a prelim. What a time to be alive.
I want Noah Anderson but we won't get him, mark my words of we dont get Rowell or Anderson we will end up with the worst top 10 in this draft.

Whoever we end up with will probably suck. If we’re lucky we’ll get at least one good year out of them before they go to s**t like Brayshaw or Tyson.

We could have a crystal ball showing us gun players five years into the future and we'd still draft more dross than talent. Whatever passes for development and coaching here isn't working for 9 out of 10 players.

Completely unsubstantiated rumour on the other board that Ollie Wines wants to come back to Victoria. Any interest there? Maybe do a swap with Port Brayshaw for Wines? I'd take that, personally. We don't need more inside mid numbers as such, but a like for like trade might be an idea. Wines is clearly superior to Brayshaw, IMO. He was meant to come to us in the first place before dickhead Neeld took Toumpas.

Wines is even more limited than Brayshaw though would make our midfield worse.

I would swap brayshaw for wines, it wont happen though, no way he will leave Port.

Just wanted to say I am glad that both Melbourne and the crows have been quite outspoken against a PP for Gold Coast - the integrity of live pick trading is compromised and there are other ways that the Suns can get assistance that does not penalise the rest of the comp. I am not happy that you guys somehow managed to finish worse than Carlton as we wanted the crows to get pick 1 or at least 2 but that said, if that is how it ends, then it should not be trashed by awarding a front ended PP
